And there is another factor that makes it clear that what they say is "bogus" or else they really just don't believe their own hype. Just take a look at the way in which so many leaders of this movement live their lives and use man made conveniences which, when you listen to their rhetoric, contradict everything they say. Do as I say, not as I do will not cut it in the modern world.
It is routinely said that a picture is worth a thousand words and that's why we've chosen the picture above as just one example of the farcical nature of the claims. The overloaded trash cans shown are just two examples of the trash left behind on the ground during a huge Earth Day parade in New York City approximately two years ago. Sponsored by the Sierra Club and so many other "anti-warming" groups, the participants left over twelve tons of garbage on the streets at its conclusion, certainly not what should be expected of people who claim to want to support the earth. Compare that to the huge crowd gatherings in support of the Tea Party in Washington, DC and other cities over the past decade and you'll find that at those events they were self-policed; the Rotunda and other parts of the Park Service property were left as they were found, courtesy of the groups which were protesting. But this is just one small part of the argument.
Think about Al Gore and his huge, electricity guzzling Tennessee estate which uses amounts of electricity which dwarf small neighborhoods in their entirety. And, of course, we can't forget the big Climate Change gatherings held often in Davos, Switzerland where attendees fly individually in huge fuel-guzzling, carbon belching jets from around the world to attend a meeting focused on reduction of carbon use. At one point over two thousand such jets were on site while attendees wined an dined on the most exquisite of food and drink which required them to be brought in especially for the event often from far distant locales. Why not use telecommunication conferences instead and use the saved funds to by applied to what the earth really needs? Oh, that's right, they wouldn't get to hobnob with the likes of DeCaprio and the other Hollywood elite who are so enamored by their ability to show how smart they are or think they are.
Even the President and his wife have no problem in using separate jets to go on vacation together, giant government owned fuel users that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars per hour to use. They've even used a separate aircraft to bring their family dog separately. Quite an example from the man who calls man made climate change the biggest problem in the world while innocent Christians and other non-violent believing men, women and children are butchered in the Middle East with no end in sight.
There are many more examples that could be cited, but the point is that if they believe carbon, a natural substance that is a key element of human life, is so critical why don't they worry about their own carbon footprint? So far the answer has been silence.
Look, I believe we have a responsibility to use our resources wisely and protect those areas which are so fragile, such as our wetlands and our beautiful lakes, rivers, streams and oceans. But that is a different subject from man made climate change which cannot be determined by consensus of those who support it. There are thousands of scientists who scoff at the very claim and only the review of all ideas and willingness to look at all the evidence, not just that which is preferred by the so-called environmental elites, is what is required in science. After all, Al Gore is no scientist and Michael Mann's "hockey stick" theory at Penn State has been invalidated many times, not to mention the scandal at the University of East Anglia which tried to cover up the truth and was caught with their email records.
There is plenty of evidence that the real reason is the same old reason we always find: money. More taxes, more hardship on the average citizen in support of a questionable cause, while the elites continue to bask in the sunshine and spew the carbon. That's not a definite, but so much today points that way.
Get rid of the dogma, open things up, look at what is really important and let's try and make real sense of what is going on. After all, man is not as all powerful as we think. He's actually a very weak player in the scale of nature, he just needs to use his free will for the right things. But that's not an issue of man made climate change, its an issue of making good choices. Meanwhile, we can't control the weather, we certainly don't know how to change the flow of rivers (example, the Corps of Engineers) and there is no engineer on earth who can match the design and engineering skills of God. We can try, but we'll always fail. Ultimately, his will WILL be done.
